Tilda With Umbrella for Friday Sketchers

This is my DT card for Friday Sketchers this week and the challenging and fun sketch was designed by Jacqueline of the Netherlands. I hope you will visit our blog and have a look at all of the other DT members' gorgeous cards. Please join with us this week on this interesting sketch challenge.

The sketch is actually an octagon but I found that my typical cards are too heavy to make into an octagon so I put my octagon within the square, using decorative photo corners to give the appearance of an octagon and making the octagon the REAL base for the card design.

I used Bazzill CS for the base, Prismatics Spring Willow Medium for the matting, and the remainder of the card is all Anna Griffin Sierra Collection paper. The fabric photo corners are also Anna Griffin. I used Tilda With Umbrella from the Fortune Collection 2009.

For the front of the card, the second panel is done with the Floral Fantasy embossing folder. Tilda was colored with Copics and with a touch of Spica highlights. I colored the basket and umbrella again and propped them up on dimensional tape. Since Shimmerz is our sponsor this week, I also added some glimmer to the umbrella with Angel Wings. The "hi" sentiment is from a CB die. I used 3 taupe brads and three-layer primas with wedding pearl brads which I colored with Copics also. The second panel is propped up with dimensional tape, and the Tilda panel is propped up as well. To add some texture and interest to the front I used 6 lacing brads and 3 coordinating colors of DMC floss...I pretended that under the shawl that Tilda was wearing a dirndl and this treatment kinda reminds me of dirndl lacings!!

Notice that I carried the shape theme into the inside of my card. For the first panel of the inside I colored Tilda again with Copics, added a touch of Spica for various trim and Shimmerz for the umbrella. I airbrushed the white octagonal nestie with a light olive and added tiny taupe brads to the corners. For the jotting panel I used a decorative corner punch and the jotting place is octagonal nesties with the same DMC thread in taupe eyelets.

I hope you like this little cutie and will visit the other DT's cards over on Friday Sketchers . Thank you so much for dropping by and I would appreciate any comment that you might wish to make. Please come back again and again--we love and welcome visitors!!

I hope that each of you will have an enjoyable and safe weekend...Hugs to all!!

Tilda With Crowfoot (whatever that is)

Happy Thursday everyone. I hope that your respective week has been one with fewer trials and tribulations than mine has been!!

I finally completed this card using the sketch from Stamp With Fun which is a Monday sketch challenge blog. I really like this sketch by Nikki since you have so much space to embellish or use whichever image you might choose. I used Tilda With Crowfoot from the Summer and Sea Collection 2008 which is now available at Magnolia-licious and after looking up "crowfoot" I still don't know what they are...lolol But for this card, my crowfoot is PURPLE!! And I did go strictly by the sketch.

I used Bazzill CS for the base, Prismatics Majestic Purple Dark for the matting, and the rest of the papers are all from the Basic Grey Wisteria Collection. Purple is not my favorite color, but these papers are very rich and yummy. For the front of the card I used the Textile embossing folder for the second panel, and nesties for the top panel. Tilda was colored with Copics, wings are Diamond Stickles, and the crowfoot is emphasized with lavender FlowerSoft. The background was airbrushed with BG000 to pick up the tiny bit of aqua in the DP. I also added a lace strip and woven ribbon for the stripe panel...and believe me I didn't think I would ever find that ribbon with purple AND aqua in it. I finally added primas with purple rhinestones and tiny Wisteria purple brads to the corners and to hold the wee heart with sentiment charm.

The inside is quite simple. The first panel repeats the same textile panel and enclosing it with the same ribbon/lace from the front. The jotting panel is the same CS from the front with a matted nestie and several primas with rhinestones and various leaves/branches by MS.

I hope you will like this little girl and will leave her a note telling her what you think. I do appreciate your coming by to see us here and hope you will want to come back again and again!!

Diana at Magnolia-licious has informed everyone that she has a gazillion stamps in the house NOW...she has also received the Graduation and Student Collection so please shop NOW for the best selection!!

Tilda Goes Vintage for Friday Sketchers

This is my DT card for Friday Sketchers and this week we have a wonderful sketch by Heidi of Norway. I hope you will come on over, see the wonderful cards by the design team, and join us this week in using this fabulous sketch. I made my card quite frou-frou vintage so I could also use her for the Stamp with Fun challenge this week.

I used Bazzill CS for the base, 2 layers of solid color DP for the matting, and K&Company Madeline DP which I altered quite a bit (see my note below). I also used Tilda with Braid from the Christmas 2008 Collection since there are very few Tildas with long dresses that I am aware of. She will be available at Magnolia-licious in several weeks. She is colored with Copics and has Angel Wings Shimmerz on her wings...pretty appropriate, huh? lol Please note that I wanted Tilda's skin to be much paler than usual for this era of card. All panels are stitched with Old Gold thread.

On the front of the card, the first layer is actually the corners of a rectangular paper doily place mat. On top of that is the next tilted square propped up on dimensional tape and which I have surrounded with pearl trim. I wanted this gorgeous DP to show so I used a vellum scalloped oval nestie for Tilda--this oval has gold beads adhered to the scallops to emphasize little Tilda. She is also propped up on dimensional tape. To finish the front I added Prima shades of olive flowers with peach rose centers, pearls to the corners of the small square, an old pin/locket tied with gold cord, and an antique button with a touch of peach tulle.

The first panel on the inside of the card is a coordinating DP from the same Madeline collection. I added a peach silk ribbon and a metal hanging rod with several charms hanging from chains. The jotting panel is the same ALTERED DP as the front. I put another Tilda with Braid on a ribbon and made a small envelope with vellum, trimmed with pearl and gold beads. The jotting area is inside the envelope on a card, trimmed with MS lace punch and stamped in PTI Berry Sorbet with the Sittin' Here stamp from the Chasing Butterflies Collection 2009 which can be found at Magnolia-licious. Finally I added pearls to each corner of the main panels.

I wanted to show you something that I have never heard anyone admit to in the cardmaking world!! lol...I wanted to use a particular patterned paper for this card BUT the colors were all wrong. I had already decided on some peach colored roses for part of the embellishment and the paper I wanted to use was definitely PINK and shades of pink. That would never do!!! So I took out a handful of Copics and colored all of the pink and pink shades on the paper with peach and peach shades and VOILA it matches!!!!! What do you think?? I hope you can see the significant change in colorway in this picture:

So if you need a particular color in one of your DPs and don't know what to do...just grab a Copic and make it be there!!!

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my take on this week's sketch at Friday Sketchers using this little girlie and will let me know what you think of her...If you have any questions, please drop me a quick email. Thank you so much for visiting us...we appreciate each of you!! Best wishes for a wonderful weekend!! Magnolia-licious hugs!!!

April Showers Bring May Daisies

A delightful Tuesday to everyone!! Gosh that April showers thing didn't say a thing about May pouring rain!!! But we had plenty of rain, rain, rain this weekend! That's ok...reason enough to stay inside and play with Maggies!!

So this was an excellent opportunity to try another challenge at Just Magnolias that I can use for the next mingle card which requires water and flowers. Here is the fun sketch by Naoual which can be rotated and the elements can be resized, as long as you follow the original sketch.

I used Rainy Tilda from the Fall Collection 2007 since I don't have the new Tilda in Spring Rain yet from the Chasing Butterflies Collection 2009. The new one is now available at Magnolia-licious and she certainly is a real cutie!!!

I used Bazzill CS for the base of the card, Prismatics Nautical Blue pack and Prismatics Yellow pack for the matting, and I have no earthly idea for the rest of the card. The white nestie panel was airbrushed then stamped with the complete image. Another image was stamped and Tilda was cut out and was colored with Copics and propped up on dimensional tape. I also colored the raindrops and colored a water puddle at Tilda's feet. I then added Glossy Accents to each of the raindrops, the puddle, the splash in her hand, and Tilda's boots. I made a small bouquet of daisies with an umbrella-like handle for the upper corner and tied with narrow yellow ribbon. I also added a daisy flower pot button with yellow ribbon to the corner of the nestie for interest! Finally, I added yellow brads to the corners. You will notice that I didn't add a sentiment since there are sentiments all over the dp.

I used coordinating papers for the inside of the card. On the first panel I added a digital umbrella colored with Copics, cut apart and the top propped up on dimensional tape. I added a yellow ribbon to the handle and Glossy Accents raindrops on the top part. I also added Water Dewdrops to the corners of the panel. On the jotting panel I merely placed a matted nestie on the dp, another touch of daisies and MS punched fronds and finally added Dewdrops to the corners.

I hope you like this little girl and will jot her a note. I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!!! Hugs!!

Summer Tilda with Bowknot - Ain't She Cute?

Happy Saturday, everyone!! I hope that your week was an exceptional one and that you have wonderful plans for your weekend. I also hope that you have accomplished more than I have this I must still have a touch of the winter doldrums because although it is warm during the day, the nights and mornings are still tooooooo chilly for me!!

I have attempted the sketch over on Stamp With Fun which has a new challenge every Monday. This week's sketch, by guest designer Conny, is quite interesting and fun to work with. I turned the sketch on its side for my card since my image was a vertical rectangle. I am also using the card for Copic Creations, a twice monthly challenge, which for this period is featuring blonde hair.

Here is my take on these two challenges:

This card uses Bazzill CS as the base, and CS from The Paper Company's Meadow Collection for the matting. All the DP is from the Sydney Collection by Making Memories. I have used Summer Tilda With Bowknot from the Shabby Chic Summer Collection 2008 which is available at Magnolia-licious.

Most of the panels for this card were stitched. Tilda was stamped twice (one for the front and one for the inside), colored with Copics, Diamond Stickles placed on her wings, and then cut out.

For the front of the card, the DP panels were adhered in their respective places with Scor-Tape. The nestie panel which has the image was first airbrushed lightly with Copics to show sky and ground before Tilda was added to it. I left the panel in the nestie for the airbrushing so that it would remain with a white frame around it. I then added 4 layer Prima flowers with wedding pearl brads on opposite corners and triple pearl treatment on the other opposite corners. Notice that I intentionally made the centers of the flowers a different size so they would not look so contrived. I finally dangled a FRIENDS charm on a gold cord from the upper flower to give the card some motion.

On the inside of the card the first panel is tied together with a light yellow organza ribbon with a pearl and gold pin through it to be consistent with the pearls and gold from the front. On the other panel the other little Tilda is standing behind the matted nestie jotting place. To finish the inside, very small Kaiser pearls were added to soften all of the corners.

I hope that you will let this little Tilda know what you think of her. She is a fun one to work with because she is kinda short and squatty and fits in smaller places than many other Tildas.

I would like to remind you of the Butterfly Wings challenge and the DT Sketch challenge which are going on through the month of May at Magnolia-licious. Send pics of your cards to, Diana has also pointed out the new shipping policy: All orders to Canada and the US for $50 or more receive free shipping; orders of less than $50 to Canada and the US will be charged $2.50. She has also announced the pre-order period for the limited Graduation Collection and she has put together a Bundle which you can find on the Magnolia-licious website.

There are a number of fun activities going on over at the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Site which you may be interested in--raining, mingling, challenges, as well as general questions and answers related to Maggies.

I hope that the rest of your weekend will be a most enjoyable one! Thank you so much for coming by and we hope you will come back and visit us again real soon. Hugs to all!!

Loving Edwin at Friday Sketchers

Happy Friday, everyone!! I hope you have had a wonderful week and are looking forward to a marvelous weekend! Although it is warm during the day here, we are still having cool nights and chilly mornings...brrrrr...makes moving in the mornings a little slower!! lol But most of the roses are starting to bloom...I only have over 175 bushes so you know what I do to stay busy!!

Today is Friday Sketchers day where we have a brand new and exciting sketch for the next week. I hope you will have a look and try to join us. This week's sketch is by Claudia from the USA and it is quite interesting, at least for me.

Of course you can turn the sketch any way you wish and since my image was a vertical one I attempted to follow the sketch just as it is presented by Claudia. As a reminder, if you participated last week, please remember to check this week's post to see if you won any of the prizes and need to send your address to the person who will present their surprise and their respective card. Good luck to all the participants!!!

The winner of my card and surprise is Marit - MaritO's papirblogg. Congratulations Marit...please contact me with your address!!

Congratulations also to Tanja - Stampin' Piper who will be the Guest Designer at Friday Sketchers for the next 3 months!!

Here is my attempt at this week's sketch:

My 6"x6" card uses Bazzill CS for the base and PTI Pure Poppy and Lemon Tart for all matting. The DP was a gift and I think it may be a digital paper set. For the front of the card I used Loving Edwin from the Love Collection 2009 which you can find at Magnolia-licious. Diana's shop has the largest selection of Magnolias in North America and it is offering free shipping to the US and Canada with a $50 or more order; for less than a $50 order shipping will be only $2.50.

I stamped Edwin twice so that he could have as much dimension as the balloons. All coloring on the card is done with Copics. Since I needed for the image to be taller to fit the sketch, I added two more balloons and used balloon shaped buttons tied with embroidery floss. I used a Spica pen to give some shine to his buttons. I also added a little whimsey with buttons of a turtle with a blue propeller beanie and a porcupine holding a red balloon to go strolling with Edwin!! Aren't they cute?? I used candlewicking for the strings and finished the front with red brads to soften the corners.

The inside of the card uses either the same or coordinating DP from the front. The first panel is trimmed with yellow rickrack and bright enamel star buttons. The jotting panel is actually a magnolia stamp also--School Slate/Blackboard from the So Heavenly, Travel, and School Collection 2008, which can also be found at Magnolia-licious. I added a little bronze school clip to the upper corner of the slate which can be used for a gift card or note. Finally both panels were finished with tiny red brads.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing the way I have used Loving Edwin and the School Slate and will let me know what you think!! Also, I would like to invite you over to Friday Sketchers to see the really wonderful cards made by the other members of the Design Team.

There is still plenty of time to participate in the Butterfly Wings Challenge and the DT Sketch Challenge over at Magnolia-licious -- both run through the end of May. Please mail the pics of your cards to

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you will return often to see what Tilda and Edwin are up to!! I wish for everyone an enjoyable and safe weekend!! Hugs!!

The Metamorphosis of Flower Power Tilda

Happy Sunday, Everyone! I hope that each of you has had a magnificent weekend and that all the Moms have had a very special day!!

This card was made for the unique challenge suggested by Suzan Laferty on the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Site which was "to design your own Butterfly Tilda by adding butterfly wings to an existing Tilda image." Suzan asked us to perform our own metamorphosis on poor Little For those of you who remember (or have read the Hippie era, you will know that many Hippies embraced Eastern philosophy. So I decided to let little Flower Power Tilda, who reminds me of a little hippie with flowers in her hair, wander off to the East also.

My 6"X6" card uses Bazzill and Making Memories CS and the DP is from Basic Grey's Marrakech collection--that sounds Eastern or hippie, doesn't it?? I have used Flower Power Tilda and Tulips and Grass, both from the Shabby Chic Collection 2008 and both available at Magnolia-licious, the best source for Magnolia stamps in North America. All panels are double matted and stitched. Tilda was colored with Copics and the flower wreath in Tilda's hair and the Tulips are colored with Sakura Souffle pens for a touch of texture. On the front, Tilda's wings are parts of a Prima glitter and sequin butterfly. I used a ribbon panel with MS lattice arch punched sides with light orange organza ribbon and turquoise silk ribbon. All flowers are Primas and the centers are BG Marrakech brads. The small butterflies are from Creamotion in the Netherlands. Tilda and wings are connected with Scor-Tape and are then placed on dimensional tape on triple nesties.

The inside of the card uses coordinating papers from the same collection with all panels stitched. The first panel adds the turquoise ribbon again with another Tilda resting on double nesties. This time I made Tilda's wings with feathers, airbrushed first, then dotted with Copics. The jotting panel was stamped with a portion of the tulip stamp which repeated a bit of the graphics of the DP and placed on nesties. Finally I added another butterfly, same as on the front.

I hope you like this little hippie and will want to play along with this fun challenge. Be sure to send a pic of your card to Diana at She has a gallery on her site for the Butterfly Wings Challenge and you should have a peek at such pretty submissions. Thank you, Suzan, for such a fun and unique challenge!!

Hope everyone has a wonderful week. Take care and be safe...Hugs...

Tilda With Bee at Friday Sketchers

Happy Friday, everyone!! ALL Fridays are happy!! I hope that everyone had a magnificent week!

Since it's Friday, I would like to share with you my thrilling news!!! I have been invited to be on the Design Team of Friday Sketchers, an international sketch challenge blog. As much as I enjoy working with sketches, this is really going to be an exciting adventure for me. You are cordially invited to participate in this fun and stimulating challenge blog which presents a weekly challenge every Friday. This week marks the first year anniversary of this blog and there will be a number of prizes to be won. Each DT member will send to a selected winner the card we each have made this week as well as a please come join us!! This is the RAK that I will be sending some lucky person along with my card. So come on over and join us for all the fun and challenge and be sure to visit the other DT's blogs and you may get some sneak peeks of their RAKs/surprises also!

I made the following card based upon the challenging (for me!! lol) sketch by Carole from England.

For this 6"X6" card I used Bazzill CS for the base, PTI Lemon Tart for the matting, and all the DP is from Making Memories Flower Patch. I used little Tilda with Bee from the new Chasing Butterflies Collection 2009, which is in-house right now at Magnolia-licious! I know that for everyone that is exciting and happy news!!! We all know what Diana is doing these days for sure!!! I also used the Pot with Spring Onions and the Wrapped Violet.

For the front of the card, I used 2 Tildas and 2 pots so that I could add alot of dimension by layering them. All coloring on this card is Copics and all panels are stitched. In addition the bee has Diamond Stickles on his wings. I added eyelet to one panel and laced it with yellow satin ribbon. I also added a couple of flower buttons to the base of the pot for grounding purposes and made sure that the little bee button was swirling around over Tilda's head by a touch of piercing. To soften Tilda's seat I added a very little bit of mixed green and ivory FlowerSoft. The front is finished with tiny yellow button brads on the corners.

For the first panel on the inside of the card I again used laced eyelet and dangled a tiny flowerpot charm from the ribbon. And on the jotting panel I placed an oval nestie with the Wrapped can see that I made the violet into a peach/yellow pansy to match the To add a bit of interest to the 'pansy' I added another tiny touch of the mixed FlowerSoft to this pot also.

I hope you have enjoyed my first contribution to Friday Sketchers and will join us every week for our fun challenges!!

I agree with Diana, this Chasing Butterflies Collection is just tooooooooo cute. And it is so much fun to play with!!

I would like to remind everyone of the Butterfly Wings challenge and of Sharon's wonderful sketch challenge for May which are both going on over at Magnolia-licious. You can email the pictures of your cards to any time during the month of May.

Many thanks for dropping by and hope you have enjoyed it. Big Hugs to all of you!!

Tilda With Tag Goes Black/White/Red

Happy Monday Everyone!!! Best wishes for a wonderful week!!

Wow, Sharon! What a fun sketch you have created for us this month!! I hope that everyone will join us by participating in this exciting and very versatile sketch challenge for the month of May. Be sure to mail a pic of your card to Diana at in order for her to place it in the May Sketch Challenge Gallery on the web site of Magnolia-licious.

One of my Mom's nurses (my Mom is in a Life Care Center after suffering a massive stroke 2 years ago) asked me to make her daughter a birthday card for her 16th birthday and asked if I could do the card in black and white with a touch of red. I decided that I would do this card using Sharon's sketch...great job Sharon!!! The challenge on The Corrosive Challenge Blog is to create a birthday card (honoring Janet's birthday this week. Happy Birthday, Janet!!) So you can decide if I met the requirements of the sketch, the requirements for the nurse, and those of the challenge blog.

I selected the cutest little Tilda with Tag from the Valentine Collection 2009 which can be found along with all of her pals and accessories at Magnolia-licious, the home of the largest selection of Magnolia stamps in all of North America. I used Bazzill CS for the card base and PTI Black and Pure Poppy for all matting and Cryogen White which has a bit of gold sparkle. The checked DP is actually gift wrap. I also used 3 types of coordinating ribbon which reminds me of alpine trims. All panels are stitched and not very well this time...I guess the machine needs a service job...sigh

On the front of the card I completed all the ribbon work first. Then I painted a chipboard frame with black acrylic paint then brushed it lightly with a touch of green to match the green in the ribbon and finally affixed rose buttons, which match the roses in the ribbon, to the corners. I then lined the frame with the red check DP, propped the frame up on dimensional tape, and finally sat Little Tilda in the frame, propping her up so that she would be even with the frame. Tilda is colored with Copics and the grommet on the tag is gold Spica. I intend to add the daughter's name on the tag before I give it to the nurse.

The inside of the card uses the same DP and some same and coordinating ribbon from the front ribbon. I also added a rose button on one panel to dangle a brass heart. On the jotting panel I used the same ribbon treatment from the front of the card to add to the continuity. I also turned the square jotting space diagonally to add a bit of interest and finally affixed 2 heart buttons to the upper and lower corners of the square.

So how did I do on those 3 sets of requirements?? Please leave this little girl a note or a hug...she's not picky!!!

Remember the Butterfly Challenge...I have been wracking my brain to come up with ideas. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!!!!!

Best wishes to everyone for a magnificent week!! Get those butterfly cards and sketch challenge cards have til the end of May!!! Hugs to everyone!!

Tilda With Flower in Bright, Cheerful Surroundings!!

Happy Sunday, Everyone!! I hope you are all having a fun and safe weekend! Surely Spring has arrived for most of us.

Again I am attempting a sketch from the Just Magnolia Challenge, which is announced every Friday. It really is quite fun to see ALL of those cute Maggies every week!! This week's fun and exciting sketch is by Bev Rochester at All The Things I Love...Thank you so much, Bev, for the fun sketch this week!!

My card uses #219 Tilda with Flower from the Spring/Summer Collection 2008 which you can find at Magnolia-licious. Diana has just announced her wonderful May offer for orders. You will receive 50% off the least expensive stamp. Minimum order is $25.00. Be sure to write the name "Worms" and "Magnolia-licious member" in the Comment area. You will continue to get extra treats in your packages. Atyou Spica Pens and both sets of the Magnolia Copic Markers are 10% off. And, of course, free shipping is provided for US and Canada orders.

Here's my attempt at the sketch:

I used Bazzill CS for the card base and some of the matting, Gold Cryogen for the oval scalloped nesties and one layer of matting, and the plain oval nesties are Cryogen White. The DP, borders, and gems are from the Que Sera Sera Collection by K&Company. All panels are double matted and stitched with Old Gold thread.

You can see that I used gold beading for scrolls, MS frond and branch punches, Primas, gems, and gold cording for embellishments on the front. I airbrushed the white oval in gold and turquoise to give the appearance of sunlight and added a grass grounding freehand with Copics. Two Tilda images were colored with Copics, cut out and dimensional tape was placed between them to lift Tilda from the nestie. She has Diamond Stickles angel wings. I seldom use a single image since I almost always want more dimension on my cards (besides that, I can cut away any places where I run out of the lines...LOL) I also colored a tiny Prima with Copics and used a gold bead for the center to match the flower in the corner. Since the flower Tilda is holding is so difficult to cut out I only cut out the stem and replaced the flower with this tiny Prima.

The inside of the card is quite simple with Que Sera Sera border dotted with gold beads on one panel. The other panel is merely a matted nestie and I have made a turquoise flat bead, gold bead, and crystal bead dangle to hang from the gold cord bow for the jotting place. I finished the inside with small gold beads to soften all of the corners.

I hope you enjoy this wee little Tilda With Flower in her quite bright and vibrant surroundings. She would love to see your opinions, so please leave her a note!!! If you have questions about any of my cards or feel that I have not explained clearly enough, please let me know. My email is on my sidebar and I would love to hear from you.

There is a very unique challenge created by Suzan Laferty throughout the month of May which Diana announced yesterday on the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Site. There will be a prize for the best interpretation. The Challenge is "to design your own Butterfly Tilda by adding butterfly wings to an
existing Tilda image. The wings can be hand drawn, or a butterfly stamp
can be used (masking will be involved) or whatever you can think of. We
can add rhinestones, glitter, foil, really anything your imagination can
come up with!" It will be fun and interesting to see what people make and which Tilda they choose to work with. Suzan will pick the winner. Let's all join in and send our pictures to Diana and she will put them all in a new gallery at Magnolia-licious called "Butterfly Wings"...such a cute and unique idea!!!!

That's all for today!! May you have a Magnolia-licious week!!! Hugs!!
